  1. Perhaps you didn't finish reading my post but the incidents sited where from the ranger and personal observation and in each case the perps were ticketed and fined or in the one case arrested.
  2. While I can't speak to all states in this matter I will only speak about our local state parks. Arkansas has some of the finest facilities we've come across in State Parks. We've seen this first hand and I've spoken to a friend who is a ranger at a nearby state park. A number out-of-state visitors seem to have little respect for the rules and property during their stay. Signs posted closing a trail due to needed repairs, trash left everywhere, graffiti on the walls of restrooms and bathhouse, and someone taking a dump along an open trail, all committed by out of state visitors is on the ri
  3. We replaced the keys about a week after we bought the RV. Same with the deadbolt. There are only three sets. We each have a set and we have a third secured elsewhere. Locks only keep honest people honest. By changing the keys we have more peace of mind.
  4. The only problem I've heard about is the crack in the I-40 bridge over the Mississippi. It's not an issue if you go over the I-55 bridge which is just a bit further south. Then connect to the wrap-around Memphis if you are going East. If you are going west hit the wrap-around on the east side of Memphis and follow signs to the I-55 bridge and connect with I-40 W. in Arkansas. We have a trip planned this fall and I've already preplanned to take the route around the I-40 bridge even if they have the repairs completed by then. That's really the only option unless you wish to go much furt
  5. We've run into that problem in Michigan, Minnesota, and Maine. Mayflies were awful. On the occasions when we've gone back we made the trips in the Fall. If you have to go then I'd suggest long pants, long sleeves and while we were there we had head nets to keep them from flying in your ears, nose and mouth. There was no break from them during the peak summer times. For subsequent trips we contacted the state directly and found when the best and worst times were and planned accordingly.
  6. We aren't close to full-timing so we always make reservations. The smart way to do it and get your choice of site is to look at the campground website, find out when they will take a reservation and call when that day arrives to get your choice. We have a couple of short trips this year before a longer, for us, trip in the fall. We have already made reservations for all of those stops and have confirmations. For next year we are planning on our longest trip ever and it will cover the southwest USA. We've already made half of the reservations and most of the rest will be done by the middle
  7. Each state has a DOT website on construction and current road conditions. Accessing that will give you the most up-to-date information and when and where possible you can plan for detours. The link to access the MODOT is below. traveler.modot.org/report/modottext.aspx
  8. Below are each of the west coast links to their DOT on current road conditions. That should give you more update information. Best of luck roads.dot.ca.gov/ www.oregon.gov/odot/Maintenance/Pages/Traveler-Information.aspx www.wsdot.wa.gov/traffic//trafficalerts/printer.aspx?view=L2NW&action=1
  9. We just put on four new Goodyear Endurance 225/75R15 tires. We did a lot of research on the proper tires and this one, for us, was a no-brainer. We have a 27' TT.
  10. I guess I'm a dinosaur because I do this the old fashioned way. I do it at home and I use my computer, RV Park Reviews, KOA, Good Sam, YP, and a few others. I plot our routes and never use interstates unless they are unavoidable. We always try to take scenic routes or US/State routes to really see the country. It depends on what we want to see and then I do the route and look for things to stop and see along the way. It's been two years since we had a big trip and this year we just have a few small trips to acclimate our puppy to traveling and then we have a family wedding in the fall. I
  11. We took out the couch and added a recliner and special table, and had awnings put up over the slides and then took it to the scales for weighing. It turned out to be about 58 lbs heavier but fell within our insurance plan guidelines and we didn't have any extra charge. It's safer to to that rather than take a chance when something goes wrong and the insurance balks since it's not factory installed.
  12. The NxStage System 1 machine is specifically designed for travel. You should be speaking with your wife's nephrologist about your travel plans. You will need a prescription for the supplies based on the frequency the prescription calls for. However, first you will have to undergo training at a dialysis center and that could take about 6 weeks (more or less). It's completely dependent on how quickly you, as her caregiver, and she learn the procedures, the machine, and the training nurse has the confidence in your ability to handle the process. You'll also be given phone numbers for 24 hour
  13. Actually, I think you just did clear it up quite nicely.
  14. COVID cases may be going down in certain areas but in many others those pesky variants are going to be making spikes around the country. From what I've read herd immunity will only be obtained when 75%+ of the public has been vaccinated. That won't happen until late summer or fall.
